- Creating a forum for discussion and exchange of experiences to deal with the thematic in depth and to identify needs and demands of these women.
- Visualizing the diversification strategies carried out by women to maintain a sustainable development of the sector, and encourage employment.
- Encouraging social cohesion, inter-sectorial communication, social and economic integration of vulnerable groups, generating employment, strengthening social and economic links between subsectors.
